Hyderabad: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday announced the commercial rollout of 5G services in India at the India Mobile Congress 2022. Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Gurugram, Jamnagar, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, and Pune will be among the first cities to get 5G services.
A telecom company official said it would take about two weeks to begin the actual rollout in Hyderabad. The testing phase was completed. Of course, there is no word on the tariffs yet. The official said 5G would start gaining numbers by Diwali.
What is 5G?
Fifth-generation wireless (5G) is the latest cellular technology. It will increase the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks. Latency, the delay that users experience in the network, will be low. If latency is high, the network will be less responsive and slower. There will be a sharp increase in the amount of data transmitted over wireless systems due to more available bandwidth and advanced antenna technology. 5G is expected to generate new applications, uses, and business cases.
Who needs 5G?
5G will provide the bandwidth to enjoy high-definition video streaming, mobile gaming, and video calling on the go. Multiple devices can be used without any worry about the connection slowing down. While it will be tempting to get a 5G connection due to curiosity or because of peer pressure, the answer lies in what you want from your internet connection and at what price.
Many want improved mobile service, a reliable connection, and better indoor coverage. 5G speeds will be about 7-10 times higher than 4G.
Is your phone 5G ready?
The first of the 5G phones came to India in 2019. If it says 5G anywhere, the phone supports 5G. If it is not, you should buy a new handset. Most Android phones and the latest iPhones (iPhone 12 and later models), support 5G. For many users, a 5G upgrade could be as simple as purchasing a new mobile plan. Many mobile makers are looking to bring them in the Rs.10,000-15,000 price band to appeal to many.
Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
